About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to Crookes Counselling.
Hello, I’m Debbie.
Covid - 19: Following Government guidelines I will be working from home for the foreseeable future, offering sessions via Zoom, an online video conferencing platform.
I believe in offering a relationship which has, at its heart, a respect for the individual and a willingness to listen in a non-judgemental way. I trust that you have the answers to the situation or difficulties you are experiencing; by understanding yourself and your situation in a clearer way, you will hopefully feel empowered to make choices and decisions to establish a way forward. Being heard and understood, I believe, is one of the most powerful experiences we as humans can offer each other.
I have extensive experience working with young people (16 – 19 years) and adults, having managed a counselling service in a Further Educational college in Preston, Lancashire for 10 years. I have a broad experience of working with a variety of issues and situations in particular anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and bereavement.
I moved to Sheffield two years ago to be near family. I am excited to be offering counselling locally to the Crookes community and beyond.
Accessing counselling can feel a daunting prospect for some, if you would like to know more about me and my approach do visit my website at www.crookescounselling.co.uk.
Alternatively, you can phone or email me and I will endeavour to answer your questions or concerns.
I am qualified In Person Centred Counselling.
My first session
Our first session will be an hour in length. I will begin the session by explaining how I work, the boundaries of confidentiality and what you can expect. After this, the time is yours.
There is no pressure to talk about anything that feels uncomfortable or difficult. I do not fix an agenda; I will always be guided by you as to what you would like to share.
